      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

The new Tyrant looks likd of cool, basically a hard bodied Mag Dawg. Weighs about 8oz, and has a replacable tail.

I'll give it some time in the water......

I don't think it works anything like a bulldawg from the video's i've seen. However I can't find the video anymore on m1st.

To clarify for the ADHD JRedig......... a Mag Dawg with benefits like some dive and rise, side roll, etc. Was created with the idea of being similar to the soft bodied baits but more durable, in turn come some more of the characteristics of a hard bodied bait.

The concept:

"THE TYRANT WASN'T CREATED TO ADD ANOTHER LURE TO AN ALREADY FLOODED MARKET, IT WAS TO SERVE A PURPOSE. WITH THE REVOLUTION OF SOFT PLASTICS IN THE MUSKY INDUSTRY, CAME A NEW WAY TO

FISH. IT HAS RESULTED IN MORE ANGLERS CATCHING MORE AND BIGGER FISH IN TOUGHER CONDITIONS. JUSTIN GAICHE IS MOST CERTAINLY A FAN OF THIS STYLE OF FISHING. IT HAS LED TO MAJOR TOURNAMENT

WINS FOR HIM AND HAS BECOME STAPLE CHOICE FOR HIS CAREER AS A FISHING GUIDE. AS PRODUCTIVE AS THE AGE OF SOFT PLASTICS HAS BECOME, IT HAS ALSO BROUGHT PROBLEMS THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN SEEN

IN MUSKY FISHING."

The result:

"THE VERSATILITY OF THE TYRANT WAS SO AMAZING IT EVEN SHOCKED THE CREATOR. ORIGINALLY DESIGNED FOR BREAKLINES, WEED EDGES AND SUSPENDED FISH, THE TYRANT DRIVES DOWNWARD WITH SLIGHT BELLY

ROLL AND SIDE TO SIDE ACTION WITH LONG AGGRESSIVE PULLS. DRIVE IT DOWN 5' - 10' OR COUNT IT DOWN TO GO EVEN DEEPER. THIS BAIT LOVES TO BE RIPPED. IN MID RETRIEVE A PAUSE AND POP WILL CRANK

THE TYRANT SIDEWAYS OFFERING BONE CRUSHING STRIKES. FOR THE SHALLOW STRUCTURE FISHERMEN, WORK THE TYRANT SLOW AND IT WILL POP NOSE UP TOWARDS THE SURFACE AND HANG. IT WILL

ERRATICALLY DANCE LEFT AND RIGHT IN AN UNPREDICTABLE FASHION THAT IS KILLER FOR STUMP FIELDS, WEED TOPS AND SHALLOW SAND FLATS."

How long was the Eagle tail the "it lure"? 20 years 30???

I think the DCG or versions of, will go longer than that. I don't have a clue what will be the next it lure...

Not sure, I'll have to think on it for a while. For sure the double 10's will be around for a long time as will plastic baits such as the bulldawgs. I'm not so sure the next 'big bait' on heavily pressured waters won't be a variety of oldie but goodies.

:-P Who, wha, when, wha? :-D

Watch the video, lemme know your thoughts then. It doesn't run anything like I run a bulldawg, so it's open to opinion considering how versatile a dawg is. Not saying it's bad.

I like my dawgs/Ds to run perfectly straight while being ripped. If the tyrant did that, I would buy one. Not saying it's not a good lure as I'm sure it is, but doesn't really fit my style. I've tried a lot of side to side baits with little success, but it could just be I'm doing something wrong. You guys let me know when you start nailing them on that lure and I might buy 1. I have so many lures laying around that I'm really going to try and not buy any more the rest of the year. Like that will happen grin

I'd still consider myeself a novice with a Bulldawg but interstingly enough I saw a video (I think it was Saric but not sure) in which the first thing the guy does with his new Dawgs is bend them up like a banana in order to ensure they do anything but come in straight. Talked to Dave Williamson at the expo and he said he bends his DCGs enough so that the blades hit the shaft. And to think I've spent lots of time trying to straighten them out after a fish or two. cry

I could maybe see bending it straight up or down to get a hopping action, but on musky hunter I saw him bending it to the right or left. That would just make the bait go to one side.

Tyrant, looks similar to a Shallow Invader to me?

The two hooks on the shallow invader were to close together in my opinion.

Back tails did not last very long either.

Tyrant does look interesting in a good way! I will give it that!

the next hot lure has already been released to a select few.

weather or not the lure maker will release it is another story.

last time I had an 8 fish day was with a cow girl 3 years ago, I had a 7 fish day with this top secret lure last september when I recieved one.

maybe you'll see it maybe you won't, it's not up to me and it's not rubber/ LOL

    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.
